Blues in the Schools
The Boise Blues Society is fundraising for our Blues in the Schools program. The BBS is a non-profit organization of blues music supporters that has been in existence for over 20 years in the Treasure Valley. Part of our mission to “promote and preserve blues music” includes providing blues musicians to give an introduction to blues music in a program entitled “Blues in the Schools” (B.I.T.S.). This program is part of our outreach efforts and is provided at no cost to the schools that participate. Over the years, the Boise Blues Society has conducted Blues In The Schools programs in Boise, Meridian, Idaho City and Mountain Home. We know in these times of tightened budgets it is often the arts that suffer the most. The Boise Blues Society would like to help bring music, and the lessons that go with it, back into the schools. Conducting the program costs the Boise Blues Society $4000 per year. We are seeking donations to help us offset the costs associated with this terrific educational program.
